    Why Ride?

    Many schools in California depend on community fundraising to provide elective classes and enrichment programs — things that used to be thought of as necessary, like libraries, art and music, science equipment, sports programs, and low-cost after-school activities. But community fundraising alone can’t do the really thorough work needed to fully staff and support all schools, especially in big, urban districts. California teacher salaries remain uncompetitive, and our state’s spending per pupil remains well below the national average. We can’t car-wash and bake-sale our way out of big, structural problems like that.
    That’s why we ride to Sacramento — to bring attention to the ongoing problem of underfunded public schools.
